Act now to prevent Identity Theft and comply with GDPR

If your business or community organisation experiences a data breach, the effects can be disastrous.

You don’t have to be one of the big companies like the BBC or Amazon to have your brand’s reputation damaged by negative media stories and or social posts. Small business owners and charity CEOs are just as much at risk.

That’s why it makes sense to ensure your systems are protected and that you’re storing, using and disposing of customer data responsibly.

GDPR compliance

It’s not just reputational damage you need to take into account.  The new GDPR legislation has been in place just over a year, and there are heavy financial penalties for firms that do not comply.

Fraudsters are always one step ahead. Hackers continue to break through firewalls and security systems, so it’s vital to keep your online security up-to-date.  But there are also risks associated with hard copy information.

Hard copy data risks

You might be relying on an overworked office shredder or you might have an ever-growing pile of old customer records or transactional data that you keep meaning to throw out but somehow never seem to tackle.

Perhaps you’re still unclear about what you can and can’t keep, and how to effectively dispose of old records.

Here’s where we can help
